TLG is great young band!!! Josh was real mellow, my friend from work that was with me just thought Josh and I were old friends!!! Didn't even recognize him... and couldn't believe it when I told him. I'm going to have fun with that one for years!!!

;)

Heard TLG, Railroad Earth, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals and Papa Mali live all for the time fri & sat! Oh, and those "other" bands too!

Railroad Earth played for FREE here in my hometown of Frederick (fredneck) MD July 16th last year, AND, are playing here again--for FREE--on July 1st this year. While I've NOT heard much from them---only a couple songs from this particular performance---I liked what I heard. I wasn't able to see last years show but hope to be available for this years.

is a really nice place to see a concert---seats maybe about 200-250. Every year during the summer there are free concerts every Sunday evening. They ask that you bring canned goods that go to the local foodbank. You're able to bring picnic dinners & eat on the lawn or at some of the tables provided. There's a large playground for the kids that's right next to it so you can bring the kiddies & STILL hear/see the entire show---everyone wins! Should you EVER find yourself in the area, Baker park is a nice place to spend a day with the family, the dog, or just yourself. Most park ammenities are available: pool, tennis, soccor/football/rugby/frisbee fields, a small "lake" to fish in, and a stream to stroll along. ALL of this is within a few blocks of downtown Frederick with typical upscale & downscale eateries, and under/overpriced shops. Checkout the Westside Cafe which hosts national folk & acoustics acts.

Sorry for the Tourism Bureau style rants about this area, but being only 30-40 min outside of DC & Baltimore, and with SO MUCH Civil War History with Sharpsburg, Gettysburg, & Shepardstown nearby, it's sometimes hard NOT to extoll Frederick's virtues.
Anyway, Railroad Earth: FREE CONCERT on Sunday July 1st, 2007.

You forgot to mention the Keys. Minor League baseball makes any town better, imo.

Yea, they seem to do quite well for themselves. Saw Junior Brown & Jimmy Vaughn open up for Bob Dylan last summer @ the Keys Harry Grove Stadium. There was a bluegrass outfit that I do not recall their name, but they really kicked ass. Junior Brown was who I'd really paid my $50.00 to see, and him & Jimmy Vaughn were fabulous. Personally, Dylan SUCKED!!! I seriously considered asking for some of my money back it was so terrible. All of the reworkings of his songs sucked, his sound system wasn't that great, and the "security" went NUTS if you were taking pictures. AND, they (it probbaly WAS NOT Dylan's people) turned off all of the water fountains so you had to spend $5 on bottled water.
